DIA Expects Further Growth in Q2

Dubai Airports CEO Paul Griffith said passenger growth may increase further in the second quarter of this year, compared to its 2.3% growth in the first quarter. Griffiths said early indications are that there may be even better growth in the second quarter, although he did not specify a figure.  

Griffiths spoke about the airport traffic at a press conference in Dubai to promote next week’s Airport show in Dubai.  He said DIA now competes for traffic with other key transit hubs such as Singapore Changi International Airport and Amsterdam Airport Schiphol in Holland.  He explained they are trying to make the gourd product as efficient and comfortable as possible so that “other transit points principally in Europe and the Far East seem far less attractive.”
